Jimmy – the weather patterns over the east of the country continue to suprise with the development of upper troughs and surface patterns showing disregard to the model forecasts :) The latest output from GFS and LAPS this afternoon has quite different scenarios for the next 48 to 72 hours. At least some parts of inland QLD are receiving some good rainfall today. Will most of the S Qld and NSW coasts receive a downpour of rain in the coming 3 days? We will have to wait and see. The system has already produced about 65mm here.
Over in WA there was a very active trough system during Saturday. Some very nice rainfalls have occurred but also damage from severe winds. A repeat of the patterns may occur in 7 days time.
